Senator FOLL (QUEENSLAND) . - T intend to vote for the second reading of the bill providing for the introduction of a uniform income taxation system, which I consider is long overdue. Several attempts were made to bring in a system of uniform taxation during the regime of the previous Government, but owing to various obstacles being placed ;n the way of the Ministry, the system was not introduced. I regret that the Government of which I was a member, did not succeed in establishing the reform. The present Government deserves congratulation for bringing forward this legislation. My only .regret is that the Government introduced it in an apologetic manner. I do not think that the Government should apologize for the legislation.

Senator Cameron - Ministers in this chamber did not apologize for it.
